This is some really ancient technology. I realize now how the newer generation of programmers, myself included, tend to draw inspiration from being exposed to video games rather than being exposed to hardware (like how you did). I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not, but the generation gap is real.

One thing is for sure, though; we all love to code.

Oh, it will vary a lot from where the inspiration came, but I think we are all attracted by something like: "I can build something like that? Lets do it!"

Hmm... This makes me wonder why. I find it pretty cool that we all have a passion for creating. Yes, it's part of our job description to create, but isn't it a pleasant surprise that this urge to create surrounds us all?
